and john mccain were pitching around in 2008, which is a promise to change all the delete of cars. the reason we can't get substantive climate change is because we can't convince the car industry that it makes sense financially. obama can do a lot. he should do something that provides jobs and cleans the air, not just talk policy. >> that sounds so simple, anna. >> it sounds simple, but it's not. good luck trying to pass any legislation through congress that doesn't come from congress. right now some of the controversial issues that stand a glimmer of hope are immigration and some aspects of gun control. in congress themselves they have found common ground and are pushing it themselves. unfortunately the reality is that president obama right now has the reverse midas touch. everything he touches turns to dirt. >> everything turns to dirt, pete? >> well, listen. i would first ask for everybody to put up their hands on this panel if they believe is man is the biggest factk factor contributing to climate change. no, we're not all putting our hands up? >> that is what is sad about thi
